Retcon aside, I love Horde Lore.My favorite are the stories of Ner'zhul and Arthas and the events that led them to become the Lich King.

Yeah, the Horde lore is awesome and it's so great to see its leaders/people struggle with keeping their savagery in check while maintaining the peace and building their civilization.FOR THE HORDE!

To be fair, when you think about it, it's not really that much of a retcon. Remember, most lore is told basically from the perspective of Azeroth's people.Before the revision, it was believed that all Eredar were evil because, well, they'd never encountered any non-evil ones, so it made sense to think that's all there were. Post-revision, after the Draenei, non-evil eredar, are found, the story changes because they have new information.It's basically the same thing as how folks believed for countless ages that Earth was flat and the Sun orbited us, until both were proven wrong. Nothing really changed except the available information, and with it our understanding of the situation.

Well, when *I* think about horde-related retcons, I don't think about the Draenei.In Warcraft I and II, the Horde had already conquered their entire planet when (I think Ner'zul, slight chance it was Gul'dan) decided they needed to find additional enemies to conquer for fear that the horde would collapse to infighting.And *that* was when they contacted TEH DEMONS to book their flight. I really loved the unabashedly evil horde of those games, and was very disappointed when the storyline pretty much erased them.

@Ametrine: While your analogy is clear, it is actually partly based on a common misconception.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myth_of_the_Flat_EarthI mean no offense in correcting, it's just a pet peeve of mine when people bring up the whole "Columbus proved the earth was round" thing.
